Capacity building of forest staff, guides, rest house care takers, boat men etc. in various aspects of ecotourism is an important function of the Board. Every year the Board organizes training programmes, workshops and exposure visits for the target groups. The board has already touched nearly 800 persons through various human resource development initiatives.
The Board has been encouraging students and youth to get connected with nature through its Anubhuti programme. Under this programme, students from all the schools of the state are selected for nature camps through a competitive process in all forest divisions of the state. The selected students are taken to some good location in the district and are hosted in camps and are given a good exposure to nature.
